5:01 pm
miles off shore will be the closest that the center will be going. even with that, we'll get serious impacts at the shore, especially the coastal flooding. delaware beaches, the dangerous rip currents is going to continue through thursday morning. it's going to take a while for the ocean to calm down. beach erosion should be the biggest issues. and the computer forecast pretty much in agreement, it's moving to the north, not moving toward the coast. then it moves to the northeast and so it doesn't even hit cape cod directly. it gets close. then it continues farther out and you would think that would be the end of it but not with this weather pattern. you see several models showing some kind of a curve back in our direction. of course, the question is how far back toward the east coast would it go. you see, the computer models are

5:19 pm
they are in good agreement through tuesday and wednesday that this thing continues to drive to the north and runs parallel to us. as we go from wednesday into thursday, models are in good agreement that it's going to make a turn to the right. meaning it's not a landfall event for us and not even a landfall for areas like cape cod. after thursday, as we go into the weekend, some models go south and some off to the east. there's not a lot of agreement as to what may happen as we go into the weekend. but here's the good news. look at the official track overlaid on the water temperatures. that's around 80 degrees and that's what the hurricane needs to survive. once it goes north, it down grades to a tropical storm because it's low 70s for the water temperatures. so the thing is, once it drops south, the question is, could it
5:20 pm
start to power up again and that's what we'll watch through the weekend. but locally, as we go into tomorrow, storm impacts for the jersey shore and our delaware beaches, periodic showers, pockets of heavy rain are possible with moderate coastal flooding on tuesday evening. beach erosion is likely. gusts 40 to 50 miles per hour at the shore. inland, say in philadelphia, gusts around 30. so it's a windy day. let's talk more about the tidal flooding and moderate coastal flooding is possible. 7:45 in atlantic city. close to 8:19 in cape may. this is what we'll watch tomorrow evening for the areas more flood to flooding starting to experience that. showers are possible tonight and into tomorrow. that's when we'll feel the rain band pushing forward.
5:21 pm
we're looking at the steadiest raineer the shore and showers start to spread into parts of i-95 category and bucks county, not much in terms of rain. those are pockets of heavier rain possible periodically. we've gone the way through the evening hours and we're starting to breakdown the showers as jose starts to move off to the east. as we get into wednesday, just clouds and a possible lingering shower down by the shore. let's shift gears. we're talking about maria. it's hard to see here because of the satellite overlay. it's about to make impact across the lessor an till lease and then over to puerto rico, here's the updated track. it's been tupgraded to a category 4 and it looks like right around wednesday is when it will possibly make landfall for puerto rico and then still a category 4. these are very warm waters to feed the hurricane.
5:22 pm
